3 Dead in a Church shooting in Missouri.  Lord have mercy on their souls, and on the gunman.

They may not have been Orthodox, but shooting any Christian while praying is despicable.

Prayers.
The shooting of any human being is despicable.

Truly shooting anyone while praying is sad in a nation of religious freedom.

Lord have mercy.  This is only about an hour's drive from where we live so it especially hits home.

Lord have mercy on the people of Neosho and especially the families of those killed.

May the memories of those killed be eternal.
